be compared to American stories such as “Hansel and Gretel”, “The Boy Who Cried Wolf”, and even “Little Red Riding Hood”. The clothing and the music of Haitian culture is another way that helps Haitians maintain their identity. The music differentiates itself by the presence of low drums plus sharp trumpet and saxophone sounds. The music is composed primarily of up-beat happy and love songs. The clothing of Haitian culture has bright colors, soft and light fabrics, leather shoes of all sorts, and big gold jewelery. The Haitians sense of clothing and music portray how the culture wants to be viewed; loud, flashy, proud and distinguishing from all others. Memories of Haitian culture have been passed down from generation to generation to teach all members of the culture to be proud and show off their roots. Haitian clothing, music, and even art are all ways to cite Haitian memory. Their many aspects of life show that the culture has much to offer and they serve as “cites of memory”. There are many ways in which memories are preserved in Haitian culture, it just depends on how you look at it.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
